New PAL dumps today.We have the ones from :

  • Poosho Poosho.Game was unemulated until I spotted a PCB and bought it thanks to Dumping Union donations.Game will be included in next MAME release.Device was a secured PALCE22V1o which I reversed into a GAL22V10.

 

  • Multi Game III.This is  an hacked clone of the Nintendo Play-Choice system but hardware is based on the Famicom/Nes home console, you can select 21 games.Devices were three in total, I reversed them in GAL devices ( GAL20V8 and GAL22V10 replacements available for the original PAL20L8)

 

  • Cross Blades (Japanese release of Blade Master!).The game runs on Irem M92 hardware, device was a secured PAL16L8 (labeled ‘M92-D-3J-‘ @IC26 on ROM board) which I reversed and successfully tested in a GAL16V8

A quick PAL update today.

‘coolmod’ sent it a dump from a Bagman PCB, device is an unlocked PAL16R6.Since his PCB is faulty we have no means to test a GAL16V8 replacement so we mark this dump as “assumed working”.Thanks to him anyway.

I redumped the PAL marked ‘SYS87B-3’ (@8D on CPU board) from an Ordyne PCB (Namco System 2 hardware) and successfully reversed and tested into a GAL22V10.This replaces the native PAL12L10 dump we had.
